Gabby recently did an interview with Yahoo Style.These days she has a lot going for herself. She just recently produced the LifeTime movie, With This RingBeing Mary Jane is also coming back on February 4, 2015. Life could not be any better for this remarkable woman. Here are a few of the most interesting questions that she answered with them:

On if it bugs her that her show, Being Mary Jane, is often compared to Scandal:

“What bugs me is that they’re making the comparison because they’re both shows that star black women. It’s such apples and oranges. It’s like comparing True Detective and Law & Order — you would never do that. What it says is we need so much more diversity in TV. We need shows starring women of color or women of a certain age or women who aren’t a size 2. If that happens, the world isn’t going to end”.

On asking, husband, Dwyane Wade to sign a pre-nup:

“For women in Hollywood, when they’re coupling, everything is about the brand. Everything is about latching on to a rising star, so you can kick your heels up. That’s never been my story, ever. I make sure to let people know all of the hard work that’s gone into my career. I want people to know the work that it took to get through UCLA, that I had student loans and worked. I was eating Top Ramen and lived well below my means. Now that it’s time to get married to a man who happens to play basketball and has done well for himself, I want to make it clear that I have in no way hitched my wagon to his star. I have my own wagon and star.”

On who she would cast in a Bring It On reboot:

“[To play me], Keke Palmer, [Kirsten Dunst’s role,] Dakota Fanning, and Selena Gomez in the Eliza Dushku bad-girl role”.

On the NFL and domestic violence in the United States:

“The biggest thing is that the NFL is a business. It’s professional sports, and there are 55 guys on a team. If there’s one guy out of 55 who’s done something horrible, you can’t taint the other 54 with the same brush. But in the sense that a guy committing domestic violence received a less harsh penalty than players did for smoking weed, in that regard [NFL commissioner] Roger Goodell has failed miserably in bringing the NFL to a more enlightened time. If he’d talked to his customers, they’d much rather have Cheech and Chong on the field than the villain in a Tyler Perry movie. The NFL is a microcosm of all industries. Domestic violence affects Wall Street, teachers, and policemen. We have a lot of work to do as a league, but we also have a lot of work to do as a society”.

It is good to see African American women really doing good for themselves!
